We had almost missed the bluebells in Blakes Wood, but they had appeared along with the stitch wort and yellow archangel, both happy woodland plants. The growth is sumptuous, the colours of late spring so fresh and newly formed. Whenever you come across bluebells in a wood, the eye and imagination is caught by the dappled sunshine and that blue colour which is almost impossible to describe as it takes on a life of its own caught in the shadows of the trees.
